Poblacion as its way of supporting the Department of Education’s K to 12 program. Last week, local officials led by Gov. Crescencio Pacalso and Itogon Mayor Vic Palangdan with Philex Mining CEO and President Eulalio Austin Jr., and Department of Education – CAR Regional Director Beatriz Torno, Mines and Geosciences Bureau – CAR Regional Director Fay Apil and other stakeholders signed a memorandum of agreement for the project, then a ground-breaking followed.
